Known for her elegant filmic investigations into visual gestalts, voyeurism, and perceptual memory, as well as her creative engagement with cinematic history, Rosalind Nashashibi presents several of her experimental 16-mm productions from the past four years, including Bachelor Machines Part 2 (2007), which borrows footage and dialogue from Alexander Kluge’s 1968 film Artists Under the Big Top: Perplexed; and The Prisoner (2008), a nod to Chantal Akerman’s 2000 film La Captive. Co-organized by the ICA and Bergen Kunsthall, Nashashibi’s first major survey also features a new film commission (comprising candid and staged scenes shot in London parks) and two photographic/collage works. The accompanying catalogue includes texts by Dieter Roelstraete and Martin Herbert as well as the artist’s own writings and research material.
